Movie Info

In this made-for-TV movie, set in Victorian London, a wealthy widow is being sued for breach of promise by her much-younger ex-fiance. A highly-respected barrister, another of the widow's ex-lovers is defending her in court. He is driven to hilarious distraction by her adamant insistence that she's never met him.

Love among the Ruins is an exquisite film, which may imply and in this case does imply that it's quite a nice film. Also an elegant comedy.

Parallax View

A slender, stale yarn, set in the Edwardian period in which Olivier plays an elderly barrister who enocunters the love of his life, a famous actress (Hepbrun). Main reason to see this telepic is star power--the only teaming of Olivier and Hepburn.

It's a pifle, but an utterly charming one.
